Sunset Cinema North Sydney 2021
Settle in for an al fresco screening of 'Spirited Away' or 'Dirty Dancing'.
Backyard cricket, barbecues and water sports are all Aussie summer clichés for a reason: they're good, wholesome fun. Another one? Outdoor cinemas. And we're here to tell you the very good news that North Sydney's version of this al fresco activity is returning for another season. Sunset Cinema is once again taking over North Sydney Oval from Thursday, January 28–Saturday, April 3.
Whether you're planning a cosy date night or easy family outing under the stars, this year's program has something for everyone — with the cinema releasing its lineup month by month. So far, the nostalgic lineup includes titles like Dirty Dancing, Grease, The Lion King, multiple Star Wars movies, and Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle, plus recent releases such as The Dry, Wonder Woman 1984, Promising Young Woman and The Witches. Or, you can check out new flicks like the Tom Hanks-starring News of the World, Penguin Bloom with Naomi Watts, and Irish-set romance Wyld Mountain Thyme on Valentine's Day.
BYO picnics are encouraged, but if you want to enjoy a sparkling or brew throughout the film, the onsite bar will be serving a range of drinks. Didn't pack enough snacks? There'll be hot food options, which you can order online and then pickup, plus plenty of the requisite movie treats like chips, chocolates, lollies and popcorn.
Tickets start at $20 for adults, and you can hire a foldout chair for $6, a bean bag for $10 and a lawn lounge for $22.
